Administrative Withdrawal

An Administrative Withdrawal (AW) is for unforeseen or extenuating circumstances beyond a student’s control that have prevented the student from withdrawing from a specific course and/or and entire semester before the withdrawal deadline (i.e., death in immediate family, extended hospitalization, unforeseen work-related relocation, divorce, homelessness, or incarceration).

Students may request an administrative withdrawal from the Office of the Registrar after the withdrawal deadline posted in the Academic Calendar. Before the withdrawal deadline, students are expected to drop or withdraw from courses themselves. Deadlines differ proportionally for courses offered during part of a semester, including late-start and weekend courses. Students should refer to the part-of-term dates published by the Office of the Registrar to review drop and withdrawal deadlines for individual courses.
